Cars & Driving

  • noun a new engine design: a combination of in-line and V-engine, the V-angle being reduced (VR) to about 15°; this results in a block which is shorter than a four-cylinder unit of similar capacity. Unlike conventional V-8 engines, the VR engine is topped by a single cylinder head.
